“One Trick Pony,” my story about the traumatic filming of Jesse James (1939), has been selected by Big Muddy: A Journal of the Mississippi River Valley, as one of the journal’s Pushcart Prize nominees for 2017.
Essentially, this means the editors of Big Muddy have chosen “One Trick Pony” as one of the six best pieces published in the journal this year, and are making it eligible to be considered for the annual Pushcart Prize anthology.
The Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses series, published every year since 1976, is one of the most honored literary projects in America, collecting the finest work from small literary magazines across the nation.
“One Trick Pony” is forthcoming in issue 17.2 of Big Muddy. This is my third Pushcart nomination.
